Venus was imaged using a 180 mm Skywatcher Mak telescope and the moon a with a Questar Mak telescope. The sun was imaged with 500 mm Nikon lens.
This is a comparison of crescent images as a montage. Imagery acquired in May 2020 for Venus (in Tucson AZ) upper left, September 2019 for the moon (in Tucson AZ) in the middle, and during the total solar eclipse in July 2019 (in Chile) on the bottom right. Venus is not to scale.
